Strawberry Rhubarb Saison? Yes Please!

The Kensington Brewing Company is doing something we just had to share! A�For anyone who follows our travels regularly, you’ll know we’re a little bit nutty about rhubarb (and local strawberries!).

First of the season (for us anyway!) these strawberries are from Bizjak Farms!

Well, the team at KBCo has teamed up with KevinA�Brauch, ?The Thirsty Traveler? and co-host of Iron Chef America, to produce a special one-off Strawberry Rhubarb Saison!


Sideshow Saison is a spicy, floralA�saisonA�with a twist: tart rhubarb and deep strawberry overtonesA�add a layer of complexity to this amazingA�hot-weather beer. A�For those looking to taste it, this tart little numberA�will debut exclusively at the SessionA�Toronto craftA�beer festivalA�June 13-14thA�in Toronto, ON.A�A�A�A�

?Kensington Market has an amazing carnival-esqueA�atmosphere, especially on the weekends?A�notesA�Brock Shepherd, Kensington Brewing Company Founder. A�?The hippies, freaks and everything in between are part of the character of this neighbourhood, and we think the ?sideshow? moniker was a goodA�tongue-in-cheek way to pay homage to that?.

?People have expected a beer from me for years now…. they’ve also expected me to be tooA�hungoverA�to ever get around to making one? says Kevin, speaking of his professional drinking credentials. ?Having tasted most of them… it’s about time to do some ‘give back’ work and be involved in the creation of one of my own.?
